Amazon reportedly aims to compete against iPad with larger screen Kindle Fire

There is definitely going to be a successor to the Kindle Fire, but whether Amazon launches another seven inch device, ten inch device, or both devices remains to be seen.

A recent report from the New York Times citing a source close to Amazon claims the retail giant is planning to launch a tablet that can compete directly with the iPad.  Given the iPad’s large, 9.7 inch display, it would make sense for Amazon’s upcoming Kindle Fire to contain a screen around that size.   Of course, with a larger screen comes a larger price point, so it would also make sense for Amazon to continue with another 7 inch device, with upgraded specs, to compete with the Nexus 7 and other 7 inch tablets.

The question still remains: Will Amazon launch a seven inch and a ten inch tablet?  Or, will Amazon go with only one of the two for the time being?  Hopefully an answer will be provided in late July when Amazon is rumored to be holding a press event.
